Conclusion

Long experience has taught that the quality of goods and services is highest when consumers are free to choose and entrepreneurs are free to provide. American education, monopolized by government, has ignored this experience. Predictably, progress in education has been slow and uneven. If education is to prepare children for the 21st century, parents must be allowed to make the key educational decisions and entrepreneurs must be encouraged to offer educational products and services directly to parents and schools. The route to educational progress is via parental control of education spending. The tax credits for educational choice program would be a first, giant step.
